Year Three and After -
Free Sheet Music for Piano!

In year three and after, the free sheet music for piano on this site stretches pianists' abilities.  

Storybook Love - from The Princess Bride

More technique is required, with the use of chord inversions, thicker textures in the melodies, and stretched hand positions.  

Additionally, note reading strays far outside the two octaves around Middle C.  

While much of this page's music is aimed at older students, some of it is easy enough for younger children who have been with you for a while.

Ae Fond Kiss, vocal score & piano music

A poem by Scottish poet Robert Burns.

A tender love song, saying farewell.


The Cat Came Back lyrics and sheet music.

Cat Came Back lyrics and music

There are a lot of ways to use this fun song with the sillly lyrics.

You don't have to be tied to the left hand chords as written... my students like mixing up the descending single-note bass line with the triad chords.


Colorado Trail song

Yes, this is a cowboy song!

Some of your students will love this.  

It is very short, but very pretty.

Three versions in several keys:

  • with guitar tabs
  • with piano accompaniment
  • as a vocal duet


De Boself, scary music!

This little piece is a simplified arrangement of the original by T. Van Oesten.  It does have a bit of an ominous sound!

Emma, a Jane Austen "Emma" movie tribute

This is very lovely, and parents love it.

Not very easy, in spite of the repetitious chord patterns.

A famous and ominous melody.

There are several arrangements on this page, including a very easy one.

Louie Louie sheet music for piano

This sheet is showing the arrangement with chord INVERSIONS, which require SKILL.

A sheet with the root position chords, however, is what I start students with in the Louie Louie Wannabe exercises (that is also on this page!).

Minka - easy piano songs!

Several arrangements here.

A couple using blocked chords, and a couple using broken chords.

Red River Valley


Sakura



She Moved Through the Fair



Sleepsong


Spanish Ladies, vocal/piano


What Do You Do with a Drunken Sailor



White, Orange and Green free Irish sheet music

One of my favorite songs of all time. 

A patriotic song about a young girl who bravely faces an enemy soldier.








The Adventures of Tonsta, Volume 1, is a book about a young boy travelling over mountains and fjords from village to village, encountering trolls and helping folk in distress.

The Adventures of Tonsta

A perfect read aloud storybook
for little boys or girls. 

The Adventures of Tonsta highlight the travels of a very young boy with a good heart, who goes about helping folk in trouble.  

With a red cap on his head and a sack of tools slung over his shoulder, Tonsta seems to meet people in distress wherever he goes.

Lots of trolls in this book.
